Im pretty sure up to 2:25 this is a one take shot but im trying to figure out if the footage afterwards is done in camera or on a greenscreen. I was thinking greenscreen because I didnt think they would have the rapper that close to those explosions plus i know it would be hard from them to go off and he not flinch or something lol.

Sorry but I can't view the video. It say's it's blocked in my country due to copywrite reasons.
However based on your description I think it's very unlikely they would put their talent anywhere near a live explosion. On the rare occasions when greenscreens/compositing is not used for explosions in a film, a stunt double will be used.

I don't like a lot of modern hip-hop, but that's a cool video! I don't see anything that looks composited though. It's all just great choreography. The fire looks real enough, and I don't know why they wouldn't be, but it's possible fumeFX was used in 3dsMax as it's increasingly common just for cost reasons.

It also could have been just good pyrotechnic work. If I knew I was safe from flames I wouldn't be too worried either. Especially if someone was filming me trying to look like a bad ass.

Yeah, more than likely it's just good pyrotechnics. The only reasons it wouldn't be are cost/logistics. First you'd have to find a town that would let you start fires wide open like that, then hire a pyro crew, and hire a fire truck for the day(s), and don't forget insurance. It could get expensive for a minimal effect. These things look spot on done in a computer now for a fraction of the cost.

Well judging from the rest of the video, there wasn't much money put into to production or casting. It looks like he just took people from the local area and threw them into the video.

I'm not sure how exactly they did it. There is a bit around 2:40 where it does start to look a bit greenscreened to me, but then the ending doesn't look greenscreen...so I really have no clue.
Regardless of how they made it, that's one of the best rap videos i've seen in a while. Fantastic job to whoever made it.

There wouldn't need to be a green screen. Just motion track the shot and add the pyro.
